Trip to the grocery store
Paused in mid stride, to admire
Fragrant pots of Spanish lavender.
Clearly a captivating crowd-pleaser,
As the lineup also came to an abrupt halt,
While shoppers consider the plant.
Meanwhile, to the dismay of the orderly crowd,
Read the growing instructions out loud.
Space the plants apart in a row–
To give them room to grow.
Prune in Fall and trim in Spring.
A room full of aroma, plucked bouquets bring.
Keep their ‘feet’ dry but water well.
The more heat they receive –
The more fragrant the blooms smell.
